Mesmerizing Rube Goldberg contraption

I just came across this and even though it’s ancient in Internet time, it’s too good to pass up. Swiss duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss’s 1987 “The Way Things Go” is a video recording of a Rube Goldberg machine, measuring approximately 100 feet long and set in a warehouse, come to life as common everyday objects methodically interact with one another in a long kinetic cause and effect chain. It’s a mesmerizing exercise in mechanical, physical, and chemical hypnotism.
